Domaine Francois Lumpp
Francois and Isabelle Lumpp own this frankly amazing 9 hectare domaine in Givry and for the those in the know it’s so much more than it AOP title. So often the collector and sommelier dismiss the wines of Givry vs their royal counterparts in Cote d’Or. These are superstar wines that are simply ridiculous value for high quality red Burgundy. I first discovered Francois Lumpp’s wines via a ‘tip off’ from Mounir Saouma, owner of the iconic Lucien le Moine wines of Burgundy. Francois inherited his families vineyards in the late 1970’s and then started his own label in 1991. He is focused entirely on the best premier cru sites of Givry. Givry so often confused with its more famous brother Gevry in the Cote d’Or but can produce stunning Pinot Noir of structure and finesse, particularly when handled by Francois.
